International Year of the Salmon event

2019 is International Year of the Salmon … and what great timing with salmon appearing in Sheffield again!


To celebrate we are holding a community event at Meadowhall, by the fish pass on the river Don (just outside of the Oasis dining quarter).


Join us for a guided tour of the river, and learn how salmon are making their way back to the river after 200 years, helped by fish passes. To book on a walk click here
